Where's Hadoop?
No mention of Hadoop or other big data skills. Does R. Half break out big data / data science jobs separately from IT?

Re: Where's Hadoop?
The report did not mention Hadoop as one of it's most profitable skills. For the Data/Database Administration section, top skills were: Microsoft SQL Server database skills (add 10% to starting salaries), Oracle database skills (9%), and IBM DB2 database skills (4%). This group of IT roles did see some of the highest bumps in salary for certain titles: BI analyst (7.4%), data architect (7.2%), and database developer (6.5%), for example, and most of the job descriptions included the expected big data skillset. It'll be interesting to see how this category evolves next year.

Re: More on salary
Very interesting and informing article...thanks so much.  I am ready to make the transisition from nonprofit IT to corporate America...it appears that it's difficult due to me not having any certifications. Can someone comment on the best strategy to making the transition:?

 

Currently, I am studying for my PMP certification with anticipation of having it by April 30.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
I'd be curious to know the ratio of average CEO pay to the highest paying IT salaries.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
There's always some hot skill to chase in IT. But there's a reason "architect" has for a decade stayed atop the staff job titles of the IW salary survey, because it demands skills and perspective across skill areas. I'm hearing that architect demand only rise among IT leaders driving digital business initiatives.

System admin, bye; greetings virtualization admin.
System administrator is supposed to be getting replaced by virtualization administrator, but I don't see any evidence of that here. The ranks of the later are growing rapidly. Responsibllity for one server or a set of servers isn't cutting it any more.

Re: Where's Hadoop?
Big data is still a bit of an outsider as far as "mainstream" IT positions/responsibilities go.  I suspect there isn't enough information out there to accurately track the salary trends there.  Even if there was I think it might sting a little to see what the salaries actually are because I'm reading more and more about big data in research fields that aren't very high paying industries in general.  It will take some time for the big data jobs to show up on the radar.

I can't help you out with the transition, but if you are in the business of making money, get out of the non-profits ASAP.
I used to do some the IT jobs that the article mentions in one, for less than an employee of Walmart makes; which was sad indeed.
